Tony Snow announced today that he’s leaving his job at the White House because (wait for it) he’s running out of money.

From the Hugh Hewitt Show:

HEWITT: Your intention to go the distance, Tony Snow?

SNOW: No, I’m not going to be…I’ve already made it clear I’m not going to be able to go the distance, but that’s primarily for financial reasons. I’ve told people when my money runs out, then I’ve got to go.

Are you serious?

Mr. Snow, according to our records, that would make you the first person in history to actually go broke by underestimating the intelligence of the American public. Yet another example of how the Bush administration is undermining everything that’s made this country great.

The sound you hear is H. L. Mencken LOL-ing in his grave.
